Outage Center

We know it’s hard when the power goes out. We work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen, but when it does you can report your outage and stay up-to-date on service restoration with the tools below.

Report An Outage

See a downed line or electrical hazard? Please call our office at (231) 486-9200 or (800) 442-8616 and let us know.

Check Your Outage Status

We have several ways for you to check the status of your service:

We often use line and pole numbers for updates. If you don’t know your line and pole number, you can find them on your most recent bill.

Interactive Outage Map

Use our outage map to see where outages are occurring, how many members are without power, and when power is estimated to come back on.

Sure, just contact us and we can help you out.

Yes, our system only knows there’s an outage if somebody reports it. If we haven’t texted you saying we know about your outage, we aren’t aware you’re out of power.
